    "Could a bad bank be a good thing," asks Goldman, adding Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS +5.7%) to its Buy list amid reports the U.K. is considering splitting the lender into good and bad banks. The split, says Goldman, would pretty much turn "good" RBS into a domestic retail lender, with trading making up less than 10% of earnings and U.K. retail business generating about 75%.

    RBS (RBS) shares drop 6.5% in London following the surprise news yesterday of the departure of CEO Stephen Hester, who this morning denied that he was forced out. The bank confirmed it will cut further jobs as part of a restructuring of its investment bank, with reports putting the number at around 2,000. Meanwhile, a parliamentary study that is to be released soon will reportedly say that there is good case for breaking up RBS into a "good" and "bad" bank but will stop short of saying that it should be done.

    Various markets dive after the BOE spells out the continued massive risks to British banks. Half of the £25B that banks must raise this year has been factored into their capital-raising plans. All in all, major banks and building societies face a £50B reduction in their regulatory capital, although HSBC (HBC) doesn't face a shortfall. FTSE 100 -0.1%, S&P futures -0.2%. (PR)

    RBS's FY12 operating profit of £3.462B was about inline with expectations, but a miss - says Nomura - if backing out Libor-related cost adjustments and gains on government bond holdings. The Basel 3 capital ratio of 7.7% vs. company plans for 9% this year and 10% in 2014 means dividend discussions can be postponed. At 9.2x core EPS, the stock looks rich, say the analysts. Shares -5.6% premarket.

    RBS (RBS): Q1 pretax loss of £1.4B, widening from a £116M loss in Q1 2011. Much of the loss came from changes in the valuation of RBS' debt. Operating profit of £1.2B vs. £800M consensus. Sets aside an extra £125M for PPI claims. Will repay next week the last of its state emergency loans and resume dividend payments on preferential shares. Shares +2.9% in London.
